[Home Depot] Ryobi 18V Uproar RC Car - Leaside YMMV 7 left

These RC Cars have been here at this Home Depot for about two weeks. I know there was a post about two months ago when these were $98.00 and considered a good deal.

Now on clearance by the looks of it.

If I was you I would offer them $40 for one. If it is yellow tagged and been reduced twice already I would consider any yellow tag at HD like a yard sale. Make a offer and I bet they will come down again. I have done it and it works 90-95% of the time.

I was tracking this for months. I finally picked it up for $50 at the Pickering Home Depot... Like 2 months ago.

This store has always had them at this price for a while now and even though had like 12-15 of them (a few months ago), they never reduced them further.

They barter on price like a flea market?

You'd be surprised, but you can do this at a lot of stores. But I find my success rate to be quite high at Home Depot.

Yeah picked up a open box traxxas summit for 100-150 off because i asked at bestbuy. Any ways, not sure why people would buy this at this prce, you can pick up same size hobby grade for 150. And if you really wanna see your kid flip buy the 3 foot ones

It's crazy how some concepts are so ingrained in North America

I think what most people do not realize is that stores are often very willing to haggle. Some, like Canadian Tire, will often just default to the last sale price. I personally do not do it often, but have done it even at T&T when buying a large quantity (80) of a single item.

One situation where it works very well is on clearance items and display models. The last time I haggled was on a screwgun. It was only clearance and the only one left was a display model. All I had to do is ask the sales associate (who radio'ed the manager) how much they would knock off the display model - they went 25% lower than the clearance price.

Maybe it's because people have not worked retail before, but they are businesses in the business of making money. Sometimes that means they need to clear things out quickly to make room for other things (e.g. seasonal). It doesn't make sense to the average consumer (e.g. selling below cost) but storing an item is a lot of work, and having to deal with "clearing it out" for regular customers is work too. When a good deal presents itself they often just take it because time is money.

I have done it and been successful at least 90% of the time. On everything from lawnmowers to bbq grills. Even on regular price items it does not hurt to ask. I you google it enough each employee or least the department head can reduce a item themselves by up to $50.

I believe we have seen these cheaper and they came along with an 18V battery and charger. Does this one have a charger?

Just go to the worker and they will get a manager if need be.
